JAB TAK HAI JAAN Runs To Capacity Despite Bigger Release On Day Two






"Jab tak Hai Jaan" has done well by crossing 15 cr nett on day one despite competition from SOS. Film was expected to do well on 2nd day and film has certainly performed. Film also opened with big numbers overseas.




After collecting 15 cr nett on Tuesday, film jumped by almost 50% and as per early estimates film should collect 22.5 cr nett. Film collected well in all centers where it did well yesterday and registered growth in single screens in CP Berar, East Punjab, CI, Bihar and UP.





Film has got repeat audience even on 2nd day and that is a good news for the film. Film has to register a strong Thursday especially in single screens in North where 'Bhaiya Dooj' will get it good family audience. Tomorrow will decide that whether film will touch 100 cr in 6 days or more.





Film also opened in overseas territories with a bang as always the case with Shahrukh Khan starrer. Despite limited release as film willopen in all markets by tomorrow, film garnered in excess of 7 cr nett. It looks a good 50-60 cr weekend there and that is more than the budget of the film.





Film is only lagging in East Punjab and Rajasthan now but worldwide filmis heading for a huge total and might become the biggest or 2nd biggest hit of the year 2012. After all collections do count be it overseas or domestic.





Below are the collections for the film -



Domestic Collections

THJ: Fall in love with love again (IANS Hindi Film Review)

India,Cinema/Showbiz, Wed, 14 Nov 2012IANS

Film: Jab Tak Hai Jaan; Starring: Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif, Anushka Sharma; Directed by Yash Chopra; Rating: ****

Flawed but fabulous, the pasha of romance Yash Chopra's swan song -- may god rest his rhapsodic soul -- is a swoon-worthy ode to that achy-breaky feeling called love. Reams of poetry and volumes of prose have been writttn on it. But no poet no author has come close to unraveling the mystery of the heart.

Yash Chopra spent most of his adult years peering passionately into the heart. "Jab Tak Hai Jaan" (JTHJ) is not his best work. The last 35 minutes when Shah Rukh Khan loses his memory is best forgotten. Miraculously the entire end-piece of this fractured symphony co-written by Aditya Chopra and Devita Bhagat, doesn't take away from the sublime beauty of the work.

JTHJ is like an elaborate work of art that offers many different kinds of guilty pleasures for all those diehard fans of Yash Chopra's romance who grew up, grew wise and even grew old watching "Daag", "Silsila", "Chandni" and the doyen's best work, "Lamhe".

His latest and sadly his last work could keep you enthralled trying to play the game of spot-the-earlier-Yash-Chopra-referenced. You will catch "Daag" in the way Katrika Kaif returns into Shah Rukh Khan's fractured life. You can catch many shades of Karisma Kapoor from "Dil To Pagal Hai" in Anushka Sharma's girl-madly-in-unrequited-love act. You will see "Kabhi Kabhie" in the way Katrina comes to search for her fugitive mother (played by Neetu Singh, who had played the girl in search of mom in "Kabhi Kabhie") and you can spot "Silsila" in Katrina's scenes with Anushka in London.

Both the ladies are madly in love with the same man, much the way Sharmila Tagore and Raakhee loved Rajesh Khanna in Yash Chopra's "Daag". Indeed, there are perceptible shades of Rajesh Khanna's poetic romanticism from "Daag" in Shah Rukh's loner death-defying soldier's character.

Shah Rukh imbues the part of solider Samar with a great deal of heart. Never since Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Devdas" has he expressed the pain of lost love so eloquently. That his lady love happens to be Katrina Kaif helps us in sharing his pain. Yup, it's possible to fall hard in love with this tragic beauty of elaborate elegance and spend the rest of one's life pining for her.

Luckily fate and the scripwriters plan a happy ending for the soldier love story. But not before a sassy spunky bindaas photo-journalist Akira(Anushka Sharma) sweeps into the traumatized Samar's life. The Shah Rukh-Anushka sequences in the second-half shot in the stunning Ladakh and Kashmir valleys blends the war-time urgency of army life with a seminal spot of sunshine. It's a pleasing blend of the valorous and the romantic that turns the Shah Rukh-Anushka chemistry from "Rab NeBana Di Jodi" on its head. There he craved for her attention. Now it's her turn.

Comeuppance, anyone? Fate, as imagined in "JTHJ" is a flimsy mistress, hard to please and very high-maintenance. Katrina's Meera is a bit of a silly romantic masquerading as an in-charge woman entrepreneur.She makes ludicrous deals with god and pays heavily for her trade practices with an unequal partner (god). Meera is a woman of today captivated by outdated beliefs.

In some ways this exquisitely mounted work of art belongs to Katrina. She owns Meera's role in the way Sridevi and Raakhee owned "Chandni" and "Kabhi Kabhie", respectively. Shot in pristine colours by cinematographer Anil Mehta whose camera evidently loves Katrina's face as much as Samar, Katrina emerges as an actress who feels her character's pain in anguished close-ups.

Yup, Yash Chopra couldn't have chosen better. All the three protagonists seem assembly-built for their characters. And they are never short of support from every department of film's making.

It's the script that intermittently turns villain showering unexpected blows on the tender romance that the director so meticulously carves out of the lead pair's unflinching commitment to delineating the doomed dimensions of an ill-fated love that finally conquers even fate.

While we applaud the film's visual and emotional velocity Meera's dumb deals with god are plainly not the stuff great love stories are made of. And yet, we can't help cheer for the lovers when they finally embrace in strife-torn militant Kashmir. Devdas had it easier. His explosive mine-fields were only in his mind.

And he could've never imagined his Chandramukhi would ever be as persistent as Anushka Sharma.

"Kya karoon, ishq ho gaya hay tere se," she blurts out in a tragic confession of one-sided love. Ah, love! What a fall it causes even for the cynics. We don't quite fall in love with the film the way Akira falls for Samar. But we come close.

"JTHJ" is an ambrosial autumn sonata done in colours and moods that redefine Yash Chopra's legendary levels of aesthetics while sharpening and polishing the contours of his characteristic preoccupations. There is the elusive search for love and of course the unattainable beauty played by Katrina who miraculously manages to take her character beyond her porcelain features. When she dances in an underground London pub she forgets the world around her is watching. Then there is Shah Rukh Khan standing tall as a soldier who defuses bombs but can't seem to defuse the love catastrophe in his life.

"Jab Tak Hai Jaan" makes you fall in love with love all over again.

We will miss you, Yashji.

Jab tak hai jaan


Teri aankhon ki namkeen mastiyaan 
Teri hansi ki beparwaah gustakhiyaan
Teri zulfon ki lehrati angdaiyaan
Nahin bhoolunga main

Jab tak hai jaan, jab tak hai jaan.

Tera haath se haath chhodna
Tera saayon se rukh modna
Tera palat ke phir na dekhna
Nahin maaf karoonga main,

Jab tak hai jaan, jab tak hai jaan.

Jab Tak Hai Jaan is a story of love. A love that breaks yet binds. A love that creates distance and yet brings closer. A love that stands the test of time and makes time stand still. A love that goes weak-kneed at the sight of the other, but is strong enough to take on the world. A love that is bitter-sweet, inflicting pain and pleasure in equal measure.

This is the kind of love that binds Samar and Meera together. The love that Samar feels for Meera when he first sees her breathlessly running through a snow-clad church path that he shovels for a living. The love that he feels for her when he sees her engaged in earnest 'conversations' with god. The love that he feels for her when he sees her walking down London Bridge or jostling in the Underground or taking a stroll in Hyde Park.

But Samar (Shah Rukh Khan) and Meera (Katrina Kaif) belong to different worlds. She is the pampered daughter of a millionaire NRI, he does odd jobs to survive in London. When she offers to give him English lessons on the condition that he perfect her Punjabi singing, the two start off as friends, but sparks fly soon enough and despite her English fianc, Meera finds herself swept off her feet by the charming street musician who brings her alive for the first time in life. Ice-cream dates, singing in the rain and a couple of trysts between the sheets in his one-room tenement later, she unceremoniously calls off the relationship. Reason? We won't reveal it here, but let's just say in this age of Y2K12 it is at once silly and superficial.


Ten years later, Samar is a major in the Indian army, stationed in Ladakh. A man who makes his living out of detonating bombs, Samar still carries the pain of bitter separation and an unspoken rage against the world. He is the man who has defused 108 bombs, but has never worn a bomb suit because he believes that he is constantly challenging god into keeping him alive. "Zindagi bomb se zyada zakhm deti hai lekin zindagi ke liye toh koi bomb suitnahi hai", is what Samar believes in. He is 'The Man Who Cannot Die'.

Enter Akira (Anushka Sharma), an intern with Discovery Channel, whose documentary on the man who looks death in the face is her passport to a permanent job with the channel. Initially brusque, Samar gradually warms up to the livewire Akira, who, though she self-confessedly belongs to the "instant make-out, instant break-up generation", falls for him "totally, madly, completely". But he still holds a candle ' or a ticking time bomb ' for Meera and a visit to London on Akira's request causes their worlds to collide once more.

Like many of his romances, Yash Chopra sets Jab Tak Hai Jaan in the 'love is life' mould, making you root for the lovers, celebrate their love and feel their pain. In his last film, the King of Romance fuses his tried-and-tested formula with a certain freshness that imbues the first half with a range of layers and rescues a flaccid post-interval. Chopra knows romance like no other and though the Samar-Meera love story is overlong and pulpy at times, he offsets it with an inherent tenderness and honesty of feeling that tugs at the tear ducts and makes a lump rise in your throat.

The love story at the centre, though emotionally manipulative, is beautifully built. The Shah Rukh-Katrina romance is passionate, but lacks the fire of the SRK-Kajol chemistry. And for all those getting excited by the fact that the pair kiss not once, not twice but thrice in the three-hour running time, let it be known that it is no more than a brush of the lips. [Still, this is SRK's first screen kiss since that steamy train ride with Deepa Sahi in Maya Memsaab 19 years ago!] Shah Rukh's chemistry with Anushka is far more easy-going, the good-natured banter between the two camouflaging the simmering sexual tension.

At 180 minutes, Jab Tak Hai Jaan feels overlong, especially in the loopy second half. It doesn't help that the film employs age-old Bolly tropes like accidents and amnesia to propel the story forward, with the ending a tad too predictable.

But Shah Rukh Khan, Yash Chopra's go-to man over the last decade-and-a-half, makes Samar his own, lending the carefree lover an innate charm and the brooding loner an impenetrable intensity. He walks into our hearts as the ever-smiling street musician and marks a place in it as the man betrayed by life. Katrina has, over the years, developed as an actress and as Meera she balances worldly maturity with the helplessness of a woman in love. Meera is offset by Anushka's infectiously energetic Akira, with the six-film-old actress allowing her eyes to mirror the myriad emotions in her heart. Rishi and Neetu Kapoor put in delightful cameos, displaying perfect chemistry. Sarika has too little screen time, but just adds to the nostalgia value of Jab Tak Hai Jaan.

Chopra's final act behind the camera is complemented by the cinematography, with Anil Mehta's frames of lively London, picturesque Pahalgam and the breathtakingly beautiful Ladakh landscape proving to be a clear #win. However, the same can't be said about A.R. Rahman's tunes, none of which look and feel better in the film than they sounded off it. OnlyChalla, powered by Shah Rukh's energetic charm, makes an impression.

Jab Tak Hai Jaan may be far from the perfect film, but if you have three hours to spare, try and keep a date with it. It could be your final tribute to the man who taught many of us to fall in love. And to grow in it.
